Enviably located in popular Craiglockhart, this two-bedroom ground-floor retirement flat boasts thoughtfully designed and versatile accommodation, with a sought-after southerly aspect.

Furthermore, it provides peace of mind with a 24-hour Careline alarm system, emergency pull chords in all rooms, and on-site management staff to offer assistance.
A secure shared entrance gives access to the ground floor of this small development, leading to the flat's front door, which opens into a welcoming hall with deep storage. The well-presented accommodation, which may benefit from some modernisation, offers soft décor blended with comfortable carpeting and natural timber doors.

The apartment boasts two, well-proportioned double bedrooms, privately situated side-by-side to the rear of the flat. Bedroom one boasts mirrored wardrobes, in addition to space for freestanding furniture. Bedroom two, also with a large fitted wardrobe, offers alternative uses as a dining room, or a study, to suit the owners' requirements.
